Just like sleep and dreams, play has major biological functions and provides benefits for us all. Dr. Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play, tells us what nature wants us to know about play by tracing its evolution-from its beginnings in a quirky and creative universe to the contributions of play to full and successful lives.
The Aspen Ideas Festival is the nation's premier, public gathering place for leaders from around the globe and across many disciplines to engage in deep and inquisitive discussion of the ideas and issues that both shape our lives and challenge our times. Learn more at: http://www.aspenideas.org/
